Forklift Truck Operators Use Damage-reducing Device
Many factories face problems when operating forklift trucks. These include abuse of the forklift trucks by their drivers. A Welsh branch of Nissan Forklifts
, which oversees the usage and management of nearly 30 forklift trucks, has been asked to compile a solution to this issue.
A solution to this problem affecting forklift trucks was found by Lamerholm Electronics. This solution for forklift trucks is known as Lamerholm Impact Manager. The forklift solution is readily available. The solution for forklift truck problems works to detect impacts, as well as noting their date, time and driver identification.
The solution was found to be sufficient by Nissan forklifts
, which have reportedly employed the forklift solution in their North Wales branch.
The system for forklift trucks has proved to be very well traceable. In addition, it encourages self-monitoring by forklift truck drivers, especially as after the system is installed within the forklift truck, the drivers of the forklift truck were given a keyfob so as to enable them to start their forklift.
Ostensibly the forklift monitoring program will implement great change amongst the users of forklifts
in that it will record data regarding accidents, thus potentially making forklift operators more widely aware of their driving operations when using the forklift truck.
